The courts have existed for hundreds of years. Social media has existed for less than two decades. When the two collide there is potential for negative repercussions upon the public's confidence in the judiciary. This article considers the chapter on social media that was included in the third edition of the Australian Guide to Judicial Conduct, which was recently published. It argues that the chapter is necessary and may help to improve the public's confidence in the judiciary. This is likely the first scholarly article to consider the third edition of the Australian Guide to Judicial Conduct, and in particular the new social media chapter.
